About Ontario Honey Creations

Ontario Honey Creations is a family owned and operated beekeeping business, specializing in seasonal terroir honey, artisanal honey vinegars, and Meads. Peter and I are dedicated to providing you with 100% raw and unpasteurized honey from our own bee yards located throughout the GTA. Current bee yard locations can be found throughout Toronto, Headwaters and Rouge Valley region.

Sarah and Peter

Ontario Honey Creations beekeeping experience began in 2012 when Peter decided to follow in the footsteps of three generations of beekeepers before him. We started with two hives and had the desire to expand our apiary. We began posting ads on a classified site for free honeybee swarm removal services. We were quickly amazed by the demand. As an alternative to calling an exterminator, we founded our sister company Toronto Bee Rescue, which focuses on humane honeybee removals.

Our beekeeping hobby grew quickly, and by 2015 we had 120 hives. At this point, I decided to leave corporate life behind and focus on building Ontario Honey Creations to share our delicious honey with all of you. By 2018, with over 400 hives, Peter left corporate life as well to transition to a full-time beekeeper. Since then, we have been dedicated to growing our apiaries and sharing our honey products with all of you!

Our Honey

Ontario Honey Creations honey is 100% raw and unpasteurized, meaning that all of the natural enzymes and local pollen are still present.

We pride ourselves on offering seasonal terroir honey, where you can taste the uniqueness of the flowers in bloom.

Terroir is a term often used to describe the taste of food based on various factors like weather conditions, soil, and relating to honey, the various flowers in bloom. You will find that all of our honey is labeled with both region and season. We do not mix our honey harvests together. Each harvest is kept separate to savour the uniqueness between the various bee yards.

Our Apiaries

We pride ourselves on being as transparent as possible about where our honey comes from. Ontario Honey Creations 50+ apiaries host 600+ hives that over 30 million honeybees call home. From towering rooftops in the heart of downtown Toronto to lush meadows and forests in the Headwaters region, our bees can be found pollinating everything from vast naturalized land to the flowers in your garden. Honeybees hold a special place in our ecosystem, spreading pollen from flower to flower, ensuring that our future is as colourful as our present. Although not always seen, their presence is essential.

HiveMinders Mead

HiveMinders is our own brand of Mead here at Ontario Honey Creations, made using our own raw and unpasteurized local honey produced by re-homed honeybees from Toronto Bee Rescue. Proceeds from each sale go back towards supporting the great work that Toronto Bee Rescue does. Along with our own local honey, we source our fruits from local farms in the area.

Ontario Honey Creations use a traditional Polish recipe passed down from generations to craft deliciously smooth Mead. All of our Mead is crafted in small batches and individually bottled and corked, this ensures that each bottle of Mead we sell is of the highest quality.

In addition to our traditional Mead offerings, we also offer Hard Honey Seltzers. Light and refreshing with a mild carbonation, perfect for sipping on a hot summer’s day.

Join us at our farm for a Mead tasting experience under the maple trees. Sample our Mead, meet our pigs, and tour the farm.
